Review: “CubexCursedxCurious” Blu-Ray/DVD is CrassxClichexCrummy

by Neo Yion July 25, 2016
I thrive off bad entertainment. Shows with an utterly inane premise or a certain level of awfulness makes it worth sitting through for sheer notoriety alone. Sure, the product is bad, but at least you can laugh at it, so there’s a consolation prize. CubexCursedxCurious (or C3 for short) held exactly the kind of nonsense plot […]

Review: “Rage of Bahamut: Genesis” is the Ultimate Fantasy Love Letter

by macattackon July 21, 2016
This series should have failed. Rage of Bahamut: Genesis is based on a mobile social card game that has been a fairly sizable hit in Japan, but barely penetrated US shores and obtained mediocre-to-bad critical reviews. The success in its native country guaranteed an anime tie-in to further promote the property sooner or later, even […]

Review: “Durarara!! X2 Shou Blu-ray (UK Edition)”: A Sterling Example of Dollars

by Grant Whiteon July 19, 2016
It’s been two years since I last stopped by Ikebukuro. I commented then that the release came ahead of a planned continuation of the story, and that time has arrived. Split into three arcs, Durarara!! X2 aims to complete the adaptation of the light novel series. That’s pretty significant considering there is no shortage of anime […]

Review: “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” Blu-ray Is a Hop, Skip, and a Jump to a Charming Film

by Neo Yion July 15, 2016
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Makoto Konno is your everyday Japanese schoolgirl. She lives with two parents and a little sister, is a total klutz, and barely makes it to class on time. Today is a particularly rough day for Makoto: she fails a pop quiz, her cooking class ends with her […]

Review: “D-Frag!” – Likable High School Hijinks

by Weathermanon July 8, 2016
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: delinquent high school kid, gaggle of weird girls, club room, etc etc etc. Yes, you have heard this story before, very likely a lot of times, so how does one make a show like this stick out? Do it well. D-Frag is certainly a little cliche, but it […]

Review: “Naruto Shippuden” Set 26 – Canonically Decent

by macattackon July 7, 2016
The anime adaptation of Naruto Shippuden has been a bumpy ride for the last couple of boxsets, with the series mired in a dirge of random mix of filler and poorly paced canon episodes, often with poor animation. The final episode of Boxset 25 kicked everything into high gear with a frankly incredible episode that had […]
